Fear and Loathing in Fayeteville…..

The Joe Martin stage race in Ar-kansas is a nice little stage race in the middle of… well.. Arkansas.  We had a super great host named Dori and we had a very interesting week.  We had some good results and we had some very bad luck, We had a guest director, we totalled a team car (no I wasn’t driving it), I got to drive 602 extra miles in the Sprinter and I got to test the very limits of my patience and abilities under large amounts of stress with NO guidance or help from the powers that be.   I can honestly say I earned my spurs at this one.

R.I.Pieces.-  the Volvo never made it out of Arkansas.  It never even got to see the first day of racing

Jeremy’s birthday cakes.  I had one and seriously had the worst hangover ever.  They were 100% pure effing sugar!

How I felt after Joe Martin

Jeremy tried to keep things lite and keep me going by playing and singing while I washed bikes and or loaded the truck.  If he ever gives up the fabulous life of a swany he could make it as a crooner for sure….
